NASBA CPT Celebrates a Successful 2012 Auction
Artwork, travel packages, gift cards, jewelry, electronics and fine wines were among the 150+ items featured in the 2012 CPT Auction, held in conjunction with NASBA’s 105th Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.
In its third year, Auction attendees enjoyed an evening full of networking, refreshments, and both silent and live bidding on items totaling over $57,000 in value. NASBA member, Donny Woods, served as the live auctioneer and the Auction also boasted a new “Big Board” concept whereby popular items were showcased on a large screen to encourage attendees to cast their bid. CPT supporters also had a chance to compete in a drawing for a stay at a fabulous Florida beach house!
This year’s highest selling items included a week-long stay at a Destin area beach house and a Gibson Les Paul Raw Power Guitar. Other high sellers included an iPad, Bishop & Costello hosted Wine Reception and Dinner, Sterling Silver Bamboo Pendant Necklace set with Black Sapphires and a Disney vacation package.
Thanks to the generosity of NASBA staff and CPT supporters, the event raised a total of $30,205. Proceeds from the auction will offset the cost of the following CPT programs:
|StudentCPT Chapters on college campuses – more than 10 new chapters in 2012-2013 school year|
|Being a Difference Award – Annual award recognizing professionals for excellence in ethical business leadership|
|Student Leadership Conference – Annual conference for college student leaders from across the United States|
The CPT sincerely thanks the 97 individuals and companies who donated items to this year’s Auction. NASBA members, member spouses, and NASBA staff put forth great effort to solicit and procure the variety of items that make an Auction possible. Special thanks to Prometric for their sponsorship of the refreshments during the event.
Auction organizers deemed the event a success and thank everyone who was instrumental in overall planning, securing donated items, creating collateral materials, on-site auction set-up and hosting what many have said is the CPT’s “best auction yet!” Kudos to Auction Chair Anita Holt and the members of the CPT Auction team!
